Tattoos

There are the meaningful tattoos

 

You could quite literally have

"the world"

in your hands

 

With the ink littering the

fresh

bright

skin

The meaning that could be

Held place underneath

Some only

Known to you

Those are the best

The hidden little secrets

You have to think further beyond to unlock

 

Multi colored

or

Black and white

It holds a story

***

Then there are tattoos you get

Drunk one night

Waking up to

Find something new

 

The regret of having and ex's name

After never being able to

Say it without pain

 

A tattoo with a meaning

You don't understand anymore

Something you don't want to see when your older and wiser

When you have read the last of a novel

The insight to another realm of knowledge

That leaves you wonder why

 

There are two tattoos

The good

Or

The not so good
